In 2010, Jeffrey Lendrum was apprehended at a British airport with 14 rare peregrine falcon eggs in a parcel that was strapped to his stomach. Here the author of The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu follows the parallel lives of this smuggler who spent two decades capturing endangered raptors worth millions of dollars, and Andy McWilliam of the U.K.'s National Wildlife Crime Unit. Determined to protect birds of prey, McWilliam follows Lendrum from the volcanoes of Patagonia to Zimbabwe's Matobo National Park, and from the Arctic Circle to luxurious aviaries in the deserts of Dubai.
